When the final out was recorded in today’s Yankees 6-5 win, even the Orioles were celebrating.

This year’s series between New York and Baltimore was a historic one that the Yankees enjoyed immensely. So much so that they may want to send Baltimore a thank you basket for helping them get on top of the American League East.

With Wednesday’s victory, the Yankees ended their season long destruction of their division rivals who did not fight that much. New York provided a boat load of fireworks throughout the 19-game season series because they are “savages” at the plate, according to Aaron Boone.

Back on August 7, when Gio Urshela crushed a two-run dinger off of Miguel Castro, he set a new MLB record for his club. It was the 49th home run hit by the Bronx Bombers against the Orioles this campaign, a number that may not be touched for years to come by any team against a single opponent in a single season.

New York went on to hit 12 more home runs over the rest of the schedule between to two teams, setting the record with an astonishing 61 round trippers. Gleyber Torres led this long ball parade for the Yanks with 13 home runs against Baltimore which is a record in itself along with his five multi-homer games against a single team.

Gary Sanchez would hit the double-digit mark for home runs against the Orioles on Wednesday. He and Torres are the first Yankees teammates to hit the mark against one team since Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth each had 11 dingers against the Boston Red Sox in 1927.

Torres ended the series with four doubles along with his home runs for a total of 17 extra-base hits, just one shy of Mickey Mantle’s 18 against the Chicago White Sox in 1957.

It is pretty hard to believe, but Baltimore did lead the series against New York at one time, winning two out of the first three games between the teams. However, the Yankees went on to win 16 consecutive games to take the series 17-2.

That is the most victories against a single opponent in a single campaign since taking 17 against the Kansas City A’s in 1959.

During the 19 games this season the Yankees outscored Baltimore 151-83.

Thankfully, Baltimore can relax now and get some therapy for their Yankees issues. The reprise against New York will last for about seven and a half months when the two squads take to the field against each other on March 26, 2020 for Opening Day.
